I’ve been gone for awhile but that doesn’t mean stuff is getting done. I’m working on three books at the same time. I know. I know. Not recommended.
My first book ‘hero’ is still being edited. I’m going chapter by chapter focusing on catch point of view errors and making sure that at least two senses are referenced. After, I plan on adding depth to lessor characters as well as removing any passive voice. After that I hope to be done. I think ten plus years on one book is enough.
The boys of Brighton beach, my second book is closing in on the completion of the first rough draft. I’m about ten thousand words away. That will still only give me a total of less than sixty thousand words. I expect to add about fifteen thousand words during the editing process. I’m trying to put meat on the bone and will add layers as I edit. I’m sure there are better ways to do this but this is the way that I’m doing it now. I target five hundreds a day.
Finally, my third book, ‘A mountain of forgiveness’ is about ten thousand words in. Target is sevent thousand words so lots to write still.
I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
